KEY POINTS

  • Microsoft is rumored to hold an event this spring

Rumor has it that this year's upcoming Microsoft Spring event would only be a minor refresh for the tech giant's existing products. However, the event is also anticipated to be the company's venue for launching the new set of Surface hardware.

While there are no new major hardware redesigns or form factor products anticipated, the event would reportedly include the announcement of Microsoft Surface Headphones 2+.

Release Date

Microsoft has not yet announced the date of its upcoming Spring 2021 event where the Surface hardware might debut. However, a recent report from Windows Central revealed the rumored announcement might happen in the middle of April. Microsoft Surface Headphones 2+ might be released to the public a week or two after the said product debut.

Specs, Features, Availability

Microsoft Surface Headphones 2+ is most likely the name of the updated version of the Surface Headphones 2. There might be minor hardware improvements, but major design changes might not yet happen in this upcoming model, Windows Central reported.

Microsoft is seemingly positioning the Surface Headphones 2+ as a device ready for the enterprise. As such, the product will only be available to commercial customers. Unlike the previous Surface Headphones iterations, the upcoming model would be certified for Microsoft Teams. The tech titan apparently gave up on Bluetooth connectivity and instead went for a USB dongle.

This device reportedly allows the Surface Headphones 2+ to connect to a PC wirelessly. The company is also rumored to sell earmuffs separately to the customers who need them. Moreover, the Surface Headphones 2+ might only be available in a Black color variant.

Microsoft's over-ear noise-canceling Surface Headphones 2 were released in 2020 with a $250 price tag. It costs $100 less than its predecessor, CNET had reported. So far, we don't know how much the Surface Headphones 2+ would retail. It might be available between $200 and $350, but that is just speculation for now

While these details are interesting, it is worth noting they are not official, due to which fans should temper their expectations and take this latest information about the Microsoft Surface Headphones 2+ and Surface Spring 2021 event with a pinch of salt.
